VTVcab, a pay-TV operator in Vietnam, has deployed a wide array of Broadpeak solutions to power its new OTT multiscreen services.

Using Broadpeak's BkS400 video cache servers, BkA100 analytics tool, BkM100 CDN manager, and umbrellaCDN CDN selector, VTVcab can deliver live, VOD, catch-up TV, and other advanced video services to subscribers to ensure a superior quality of experience (QoE) on any screen.

"Providing 2 million subscribers with high-quality video on a wide range of devices would be too challenging for us without an experienced technology partner like Broadpeak by our side," said Nam Bui Huy, CTO of VTVcab.

Broadpeak's BkS400 video cache servers, which are located in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, are used to store and deliver popular video content. Each time an end-user requests video content, it is directly streamed by the BkS400 local server, increasing VTVcab's efficiencies and reducing video delivery costs.

"It's not very often that an operator successfully launches an OTT multiscreen service in the span of just two months," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO of Broadpeak.

"VTVcab was able to deploy its new service with speed thanks to the great work and commitment of their team, the flexibility of our solutions, and the strength and reliability of our local system integrator TDG and FPT Information System,” said Le Mancq.

He added that through our CDN and server solutions, VTVcab can monitor the popularity of content, balance traffic between multiple CDNs, and adjust video delivery based on the analytics that were received.
